Hi, My name is Amy. I have a friend that I grew up with and she was away for a long time. I now live with her and her brother. She developed the diabetes during her pregnacy about 11 years ago. I am new to all this with this illness, and I dont understand it all too well. Here is the situation. She is on hemolog and lantus and metaformin and actos, also on welbutrin for depression. She has been having diabetic seizures lately and its a bit too much. Her sugar gets too low and the seizures happens. This isnt a pleasant experience for me. After I get her out of harms way and she comes too. she laughs about it, I dont get it. I know diet is a big factor in all this. Apparently her sugar has been on a yo yo trip, either too high or too low. then she is also addicted to sugar products as in junk food that has pure sugar. I need to understand more about this illness. She is seeing a doctor next week and a counselor for diabetes also.
She moved here from las vegas, she quit her job and expected the state to help her. She is also working a job and the benefits wont come for a while. I am in ny the state she grew up in and ran away from. also with having alot of seizures how does it affect the body and what damage can be inflicted if any. sorry so long, I dont have anyone to really ask about all this and be objective about it.
